Strike Suit Zero

Excuse me for punting someone else's game this morning, but I want to share this with you. Found it on GOG, out of the blue.

Not so much as even a facebook add (which is a damn good thing) alerted me to this game's existence. But I love it. It's a bold attempt at the space sim genre again, and they've taken their inspiration from all the good places, places that I hold in great standing. Like Robotech. Anyone remember that? I've found over the years that absolutely no-one can bring Macross island and the proto-culture to mind.

I haven't spent too much time with it yet, but what there is seems to be pretty solid. Even the simple mouse/keyboard controls (the same trick I'm trying to pull with Stingray) is easy to master and lends the game such a low barrier of entry.

And then there's the visuals - yet another punt for the proprietary engine.

Get it on GOG or on Steam

I'm messing around with WPF and plumbing the XAML depths these days.
Simpler, quicker, better layout and easier navigation. Those were the four challenges I wanted to address and take-on with this site update and redesign.
